Coroner to probe girl's starvation after surgery


www.thestar.com

LONDON – Eight-year-old Sophie Waller cracked a baby tooth eating candy, and set off the chain of events that led to her death.

Sophie refused to open her mouth for a dentist so doctors at her local hospital took out the tooth in an operation, one of the doctors told a coroner's inquest. They removed all seven of her other baby teeth at the same time to avoid the need for future operations, the doctor said.

Just another example that professional people have gotten very negligent. What's disturbing is that it happened in England and they do have a fairly decent Medicare system in place over there.

The really bothersome part is that even after this little girl died, people will still remain oblivious to the fact that doctors are careless and even incompetent 9 out of 10 times.

I suppose that's because most people do not like to challenge doctors and keep them up high in reverence as if they are the masters of life and death (and the are, they cause more deaths than all other natural causes combined
).

Not to mention that most doctors just exist to peddle drugs for big pharma companies as their primary practice. Yeah, sure people show up to see them for their medical issues, but they are considered "customers" not patients.

It is also disappointing to read that these "learned" medical professionals do not have a slightest consideration for children regarding their thoughts and feelings. Children are no different than adults, they worry, get moody, upset, depressed etc. But these young minds have no developed means of "mental" screening and protection, ie. have not grown thick skin yet and are much more prone to influences.

Just think how traumatized this girl became after they removed all of her baby teeth. The idea that she'd have to go to school and get teased by all other children there definitely crossed her mind. No wonder she fell into depression and starved to death.

What a stupid incident.
In my country parents would slap kids like these silly to force them to open their mouths.

Stupid stupid stupid!!! Bankrupt the West now, please! They don't know how to discipline their stupid kids and they give more importance to their even more stupid pets than people.
Animals are for eatin' and wearin', ya know?
